The Software Library: Apple Computer

The Apple II series (trademarked with square brackets as "Apple ][" and rendered on later models as "Apple //") is a set of home computers, one of the first highly successful mass-produced microcomputer products, designed primarily by Steve Wozniak, manufactured by Apple Computer (now Apple Inc.) and introduced in 1977 with the original Apple II. In terms of ease of use, features and expandability the Apple II was a major technological advancement over its predecessor, the Apple I, a limited-production bare circuit board computer for electronics hobbyists that pioneered many features that made the Apple II a commercial success. Introduced at the West Coast Computer Faire on April 16, 1977, the Apple II was among the first successful personal computers; it launched the Apple company into a successful business (and allowed several related companies to start). Throughout the years, a number of models were sold, with the most popular model remaining relatively little changed into the 1990s.

A version of Pac-Man for the Apple II by Atarisoft. Offers joystick and keyboard control, and up to 5 players playing against each other. Unusual use of the color palette limitations (the fruits are huge!) and unusually smooth graphics. The program appears to have be a prototype or hack of the Atarisoft version of Pac-Man, which was released in 1983. Text within the code indicates that there is a cheat mode allowing skipping through 21 levels, as well as playing one of the three cartoons. To...
